Warm up!

Nov 18, 2014 4:29:29 PM

Recently we had our Merletto Antique Lace Cup and Saucer featured on Houzz.  Their feature was called "Warm Up with a Hot Drink" read the full article HERE.  

We also had a feature on Tea Time Magazine's website showing our Perlina Cup & Saucer being used as a soup cup.  All this exposure on this classic style got us thinking about some of our favorites!  So pour a hot chocolate, an Earl Grey or your favorite soup and Warm Up!

The holidays are here so it is time to get festive with our Natale Jumbo Cup and Saucer!  Perfect for any soup or cappuccino.


The Medici Cup & Saucer is such a classic, did you know that the symbol in Italian is called a giglio and the symbol of Florence?

Small in size but not on glam, the Vetro Gold Cup and Saucer eludes elegance.

Flower Magazine Nov/Dec 2014

Nov 7, 2014 11:29:35 AM

We are so excited to be apart of Flower Magazine in their Nov/Dec issue.  If you haven't heard of Flower before it is a beautifully done magazine that of course highlights flowers but this isn't a garden magazine. Flower does a wonderful job showcasing the use of flowers from tablescapes, weddings and entertaining.  Since we LOVE entertaining having an ad in this magazine made since!

We used an image from The Gathering of Friends Cookbook series.  We loved how they used our teacup as a container and mixed hydrangeas with vegetables, like turnips and artichokes.  

A BIG thanks to all the stores that participated in the ad!

Natale-Behind the Scenes

Oct 23, 2014 9:59:47 AM

Being at a photo shoot can be somewhat magical.  What the scene really looks like isn't what you see in the final shot.  I can only imagine what goes on behind the scenes with really big companies.  Anyway, I thought you would enjoy a before and after, because everyone loves a before and after, right?

We decided to take a "winter" shot of our Natale Collection.  You have seen our current one HERE and in Traditional Home Magazine HERE.  But since the collection continues to grow we wanted to show its versatility.  So we did some research and we were inspired by this beautiful winter/rustic wedding on  However finding greenery, even in NY, can be a challenge in October, so we improvised.


Yes, that is a topiary tree on the floor.


Spot anything else new?  That is our Finezza Green Holiday Charger that will be available Holiday 2015.  Another great piece to look forward to!

Set your own winter table by using our Style Your Table application!

Our Month of Natale Continues!

Oct 23, 2014 9:22:40 AM

If you follow us on Instagram you already know that this month we had a photo shoot in a beautiful NY apartment.  We are so lucky to have a stunning backdrop where we can capture the beauty of our products.  For this photo shoot we were shooting new products for our 2015 Catalog.  This catalog is sent to all Arte Italica dealers and will live HERE on our website onced completed (you can see 2014 now).  

As promised, we wanted to give you a sneak peak of Natale items that will be available for Holiday 2015.

Here is our new Footed Bowl being created in the Italian factory.


It is so amazing to see the talents of these artisans.

And here is the final piece.

We imagine this used in so many ways, a centerpiece for a table with fruit, a triffle dish, or maybe a bowl that holds all your holiday cards.

Whatever you decide to do we know it will be fabulous!

Speaking of fabulous, if you are a fan of our Medici Collection you have seen this piece, our Oval Bowl with Rope Handles.  It looks amazing in the Natale pattern.

We hope that you have enjoyed this sneak peak and just so you know this is only 2 of 6 new pieces for the Natale Collection.  

See the current collection HERE and start your collection today!
